Colourpop is also hosting a giveaway on its website. You stand a chance to win a bundle of the Special Edition Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch, a copy of the game, and the Colourpop makeup collection. We’ve also seen a contest on Colourpop’s social accounts that are giving away the same prizes.
We’re starting the year with a fun collaboration between Nintendo’s uber-popular title, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and makeup brand, Colourpop. The new sparkly and colorful Colourpop x Animal Crossing: New Horizons collection is launching on January 28 over at colourpop.com. You can sign up in the link to be notified first about the new line.
It’s a pretty extensive collection, with four eye shadow palettes, three tinted lip sets, two powder blushes, glitter gel, and shimmery Super Shock Shadow. Colourpop hasn’t revealed how much the collection costs, but we will definitely update when we get the info. And you can check out the collection below!
The four-pan eye shadow palettes come in colors inspired by Animal Crossing characters, like the purple Labelle of the Ball Palette and Tom Nook-inspired mint green Nook Inc. Palette. The shadows have formulas in matte, matte sparkle, pressed glitter, and metallic.
The Pressed Powder Blushes give a diffused color on the cheeks. It comes in baby-pink Flower Power, inspired by the pink hybrid Cosmo flower, and coral Flower Tender, inspired by the orange wildflowers you can find on the island.
If you’re looking for more shimmer and glitter, there’s the Balloon Pop Super Shock Shadow and Bellionaire Glitterally Obsessed. The creamy, metallic shadow comes in pink and silver shimmer that should look amazing. The gold gel will help make it easier to apply the glitter on your lids with its jelly formula.
It won’t be a complete collection without tinted lip crayons. There are three color families, including Fruit Basket Min Lip Tint Duo for those who want pink or red tints, Fruit Roots Mini Lip Tint Duo for those who like peach and apricot colors, and Pick of the Bunch Mini Lip Tint Duo for those who prefer more chocolate or caramel shades.
You can celebrate the launch of this new collection in the best way: visit the Colourpop Island in Animal Crossing on January 26 at 8 p.m. ET.
For Colourpop fans, this collaboration might not come as a surprise, as the brand has released a Sailor Moon collection and even The Mandalorian-inspired eye shadow palette in the past.
